An RTS based on the first Alien film?  It could be amazing.  I wonder if maybe this might be a heavily updated version of the strategy 1984 Alien game.  Regardless, I have high hope for this.

Just because it's made by a company that mostly do RTSs,, doesn't mean that it's an RTS.

that pretty much confirms that it's not an RTS, there is no such thing as a AAA RTS on console.

It's not like they haven't tried, c&c and halo wars etc, but they'll never be able to compete with the big boys, RTSs just don't have the fan base big enough to make a game AAA.

Talos I hope its not gonna be another Aliens Colonial Marines. We need a good Aliens game. I hate the idea that Aliens needs to be paired up with Predator to sell a decent game. Yes the AvP Games were good and sold like chocolate covered weed. but we need a good stand alone Aliens game!
